Make The End Of Summer Jaws-ome

We’ve reached the point in summer where we’re desperately trying to find something fun to do with our kids to keep everyone’s sanity. With the rainy weather keeping us on our toes, a little extra screen time during Shark Week never hurt anybody. 

At afloat, we always find a reason to celebrate and Shark Week is no exception. If you’re looking for a Shark Week celebration other than screen time, may we suggest 202 beautiful acres in Swope Park home to more than 1,700 animals?

The Kansas City Zoo is one of our favorite spots for the whole family. Open year-round with free parking, a trip to the zoo is a must during the last weeks of summer. 

Voted one of America’s best zoos, and ranked number 1 in the nation for African Animals Exhibits, the Kansas City Zoo has something for everyone. afloat’s Head of Product has a 3-year-old whose favorite zoo activity is watching the construction of the new aquarium opening in 2023.

Upcoming events include the Run For The Sharks on September 17, 2022. This 4-mile and 1-mile family fun run supports the Kansas City Zoo’s Conservation efforts. Participants receive custom-designed shark t-shirts and finisher’s medals as well as free entry into the zoo. 

To keep the shark party going, we have a fin-tastic treat and activity to keep the kids entertained after a fun day at the zoo. The Shark Cookie Decorating Kit from Sweet Petites is available for same-day delivery on the afloat app. Order one for your kids or send one to a friend who could also use some help filling these last weeks of summer with fun.
